For almost 12 years as a Pima County Superior Court Judge, Lawrence H. Fleischman became known as the "settlement judge." He created the first Center for Dispute Resolution in the Arizona Superior Court system, saving litigants and taxpayers millions of dollars each year. Mr. Fleischman has settled thousands of civil and domestic relations matters, including complex business, contract and partnership disputes, estate matters, construction defect claims, tort cases of all types, and environmental litigation. 

He originated and directed the Arizona Supreme Court's Public Funds Risk Management ADR Project. In his judicial capacity, he presided over hundreds of jury and court trials. Before serving on the bench, Mr. Fleischman served as a public defender for seven years, specializing in appellate litigation. He is the author of numerous articles on Alternative Dispute Resolution and a frequent lecturer on the topic.
